Product details:

EcoFoil Floor Joist Insulation is constructed of a double layer of polyethylene bubble insulation bonded to two radiant barrier metalized sheets. This (1/4" to 5/16") thick insulation provides superior protection against radiant heat transfer and also provides an effective vapor barrier, preventing condensation which can cause mold. Bubble insulation is rated by its high reflectivity of 96%, and low emissivity of 4%. This means only 4% of radiant heat passes through the insulation. Simply put the insulation is not trying to slow the way heat passes through it, the insulation is trying to eliminate heat from passing through it.

This insulation is designed to fit in between either a studded wall or floor joists that are 16" on center. The 16" wide insulation is lightweight and includes a 3/4" flat staple tab on each side for easy installation.

R-Value Of Radiant Barriers

Rather than rating by R-value, all radiant barrier products are measured by their reflective and emissive properties. EcoFoil double bubble insulation is 96% reflective and 4% emissive, meaning the product only allows 4% of radiant heat to pass through. 

There are some companies out there posting big R-Value numbers for their radiant barriers, but those numbers are rating the entirety of the system—including the product, air gap, and other building materials. In reality, most radiant barriers by themselves have little to no R-Value. If you need to satisfy a building code of a specified R-Value, we recommend the use of a traditional insulation in conjunction with our radiant barrier in order to meet code. For more information on R-values, see our How It Works page or contact a member of our friendly service team via chat, by calling (888) 349-3645, or using the form here.

When I read your product description, it was indicated both edges were indexed with a fold, providing area in which to secure it the joist.
That is not the case as only one edge is indexed. Then consider how the foil is made, so we had to spend considerable time trying to bend it to form a nice shoulder in which to staple it.
I used some 3/4” wide cardboard strips to use as a backer for my staples. That is the ONLY thing that helped, but it still was a hassle.

Change your production description, indicating only one edge is indexed.

Raymond Harris
Between joist double bubble

Purchased and installed 5 125’ rolls of 16” width double bubble. Fast delivery with minimal damage to rolls when the arrived. Also installed 125’ of a competitor product. Both products were of high quality. Competitor product seemed a bit thicker, but I doubt there will be a performance difference. From a value perspective ( cost vs quality & service) so far very pleased with Ecofoil. Installed with narrow crown pneumatic staples (5/8” length) and besides being hunched over in a 48” crawlspace, the install was fairly quick. Thanks!


Great product for my need.

I use it to insulate Honey Bee hives. It works great and increases the bees survival chances over the winter.
